Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 209
Larry’s expression was nasty. “If Chairman Jones doubts my ability, then remove me if you can.”
He looked straight at Catherine when he finished speaking. He did not believe that she had the courage to do so. The board of directors would not spare her.
“How could that be? General Manager Chaplin has boosted the company’s performance by quite a lot. Naturally, I believe in you.” Catherine suddenly smiled. “This meeting will be handed to you to wrap up.”
Then, she finished speaking and left.
Larry looked at her back in disdain. Who did she think she was? He was much more experienced than her.
However, just after Catherine left, his wife suddenly burst in and slapped him in the face.
“Larry Chaplin, you son of a b*tch! How dare you have a mistress outside?
“If I hadn’t married you back then, would you have been able to enter Hudson?
“Now that you’re putting on airs, do you think that I’m too old and unattractive to you? I’ll fight it out with you.”
News of the commotion in the meeting room quickly spread throughout the company.
Kacey laughed when reporting to Catherine. “You didn’t see how General Manager Chaplin’s face was almost scratched when he was slapped. He was completely humiliated. He even slapped his wife in public, and now Director Irvine is angry.”
“This is just the beginning.”
Catherine grinned and called Chase. “Chase, don’t you have an entertainment company? Could you report about General Manager Chaplin’s affair?”
“Haha, no problem. It’s rare that Sister-in-law is asking for my help…”
Before Chase could finish speaking, he suddenly felt a chill. He glanced to his side where Shaun was sitting with an unhappy expression on his face. He touched his nose silently. “Catherine, why aren’t you asking Shaun for help?”
“Him? He doesn’t know how to handle stuff like this. General Manager Chaplin is sinister and cunning. I’m afraid he’ll cause trouble for Shaun.”
He did not know how to handle stuff like that?
Shaun had the most powerful media company under his name, okay?
Chase was speechless. “Catherine, you’re going too far. Aren’t you afraid that General Manager Chaplin will cause trouble for me, then?”
“You’re the young master of the Harrison family. How would he dare to provoke you?” Catherine chuckled. “If you help me, Hudson will cooperate with you in the future. I guarantee that the Harrison family will maintain their spot as the number one family in Melbourne. The Jones family won’t stand a chance.”
“Oh my, you sure know how to use me.”
“Don’t call it that. You’re Shaun’s friend, so we’re all family.”
Chase almost burst into laughter.
“Okay, okay, you’re right.”
After hanging up, Chase was very amused. “Catherine is really funny. Everything she says is part of a tactic. I used to be worried that her position as chairwoman would be unstable. It seems that I don’t have to worry at all.”
“Naturally. Don’t you know whose woman she is?”
Shaun smirked proudly, but he suddenly thought of something and glanced at Chase in disgust.
Chase’s face flushed. “Are you jealous that she came to me for help? Come on, she’s just looking out for you and wants to protect you. She’s worried that you’ll be hurt by Larry Chaplin. I’m envious of you, okay?”
It was the first time a woman tried to protect him. How interesting.
“You’re right. She even said that she’s going to take care of me.”
A doting and helpless smile bloomed on his handsome face, causing Chase to have goosebumps all over. “Shaun, you’re so shameless. You’re already so rich yet you have the nerve to let another person take care of you.”
